“Life Long Dream”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

My wife had a life long dream to ride horses in Ireland and another to ride on the beach. She accomplished both with the help of Padraic Foy and Drummindoo Stud Stables. The smile on her face lasted for days. We have many pictures and a few videos to remember the experience. Great appreciation and many thanks to Padraic.

“3 vists in August whilst on holidays”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

cant really say enough good things about this place.

we went 3 times with our 3 daughters. the welcome was very friendly but especially professional. we felt entirely safe at all times. our youngest girl is 4 and she was looked after very well.

prices are very reasonable as well and this is not only an excellent venue but also very good value for money.

highly recommended

“Fantastic Clew Bay Trail Ride!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This three day trail ride break was a huge highlight during our wonderful family trip to Ireland. We have three inexperienced riders and one advanced rider in our family, and Padraic Foy, the owner of Drummindoo Stud, seamlessly made everyone feel comfortable for both full-day rides. He took us through gorgeous mountainous terrain the first day and on a beach ride the second. Riding through the countryside gave us all a much more vivid experience of the country and its beauty. Each of us were carefully matched with our equine companion and Padraic was very flexible and easy going, while giving us lots of time on horseback. We wholeheartedly recommend Drummindoo Stud to any group looking for a memorable horseback-riding adventure. We would love to return and have another trail break with Padraic and his team!
